Received letter from Consumer's Reward Program Lottery (Welch Financial Group. It said I had been approved for a lump sum payment of $39,000 credited to an account with my claim number. Also, that previous attempts to contact me had failed so this was my final notification.

The letter said they had deducted $3950.00 from my total price for for LUXURY TAX and there was a cashiers check drawn on the First National Bank of Texas for that amount enclosed to enable me to pay the tax. I was told to notify Sean Yu or Roland Peters at 905-598-5849 and told they would assist me.

Believing it to be a scam i searched with the Better Business Bureau and could not find anything. So I did a general search online and found about 7 reports that it is a rip-off.

#1 Consumer Suggestion


AUTHOR: Jessica - (U.S.A.)

Its so odd to me that people continue to fall for these types of scams. There has been numerous news reports about these types of things...yet people still fall for it, which is why the scammers continue.

Its very easy to tell when these are scams. They almost always involve some sort of "tax" being paid, Money-Gram or Western Union, and depositing a check then mailing or wiring the money to someone who is supposed to send you the full amount later, typically the person you're wiring the money to lives out of the country.

It doesn't matter what the "company's" name is. It just matters that everyone knows that 1. You will never receive an unsolicited check in the mail. 2. You can not win a lottery without entering it yourself.

I'm happy that you were able to notice it was a scam and did not cash the check. If you had, not only would you have been out of thousands of dollars but you could've also be charged with fraud.
